1 1/2 cups cold, brewed coffee
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons honey
1/2-inch chunk fresh ginger
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 (8-ounce) bottom sirloin steaks (or other tender, broiler-friendly cut)
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
In a blender or food processor, combine the coffee, pepper flakes, peanut butter, honey and ginger. Puree until smooth, then taste and season to taste with the salt and pepper.
Pour half of this marinade in a baking dish. Set the steaks in baking dish, then pour remaining marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
When ready to cook, preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil over medium-high. Add steak, in batches if necessary, and sear until lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Transfer steaks to prepared baking sheet. For medium-rare, broil for 7 to 8 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted at thickest part of steak reads 135 F.
Let steaks rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Makes 4 servings.
